WARNING! When the #GOP Talks about Dismantling Healthcare, You Better Believe it

Most Americans were shocked and disturbed when Raúl R. Labrador, a Republican Congressman, said, “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.” Most people would like to think that such a comment would be an anomaly, but then we remember that Todd Akin, who tried to convince us that there was such a thing as “Legitimate Rape,” was also a GOP Congressman. Maybe extreme thoughts and ideas are not outliers in the Republican party. Perhaps harsh and cruel are at the core of the GOP agenda for America. The party has certainly given America plenty of reasons to think that is the case.

Now, the Senate Republicans are working on healthcare. When what they might do is taken with what House Republicans have already approved and what 45 is proposing in his budget, America’s vulnerable populations (women, children, seniors, working class and poor) are in trouble if the GOP gets its way.

Americans who desire a just and fair healthcare policy will get a chance to vote for leaders who support such a policy in 2018 and 2020. Now, the only recourse is to contact members of Congress and  ask them to #ProtectOurCare!
